Australian households use a total of 240.000 litres of water a year as a result of including a flushing toilet in their home. According to the Victorian Plumbing Industry Commission a 5,000L rainwater tank on a 100m² roof area would yield 60,000L per year.
In summary, not only can installing a waterless toilet reduce your water usage but reusing grey water is a vital step in creating an off the grid home!
Approvals - each local council has different rules and regulations, please contact your local council for more information relating to Eco Toilets and Grey Water Systems. Or check out the resources offered on the Ecoflow website.
